Qantas Socceroo striker Mark Viduka has continued on his current hot streak, with a two-goal haul in Middlesbrough-s 3-0 win over Banik Ostrava, while Travis Dodd and Patrick Kisnorbo also found the back of the net in UEFA Cup action last night. Viduka, who has now scored five goals in four games since his summer move from Leeds, scored Middlesbrough-s second and third goals after his striker partner Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink opened the scoring in the 57th minute. Australia-s premier striker scored his first with a powerful drive in the 63rd minute and capped off a fine performance by heading home a second in the 80th minute. Patrick Kisnorbo scored what could prove a very crucial goal for Hearts, as it won 3-1 at home against Portuguese side Braga. Kisnorbo scored Hearts third goal deep into injury time and this will make Braga-s job of salvaging the tie all the more difficult. Former Parramatta Power winger Travis Dodd got his Greek side Panionios off to a flying start with a goal after 27 minutes; as they went onto win 3-1 against Italian side Udinese. Meanwhile other Aussie winners were Michael Petkovic and his Trabzonspor side, although the Aussie keeper did concede late goals in the 3-2 win, while Socceroos Mark Bresciano and Vince Grella both played in Parma-s 3-2 win over NK Maribor. Socceroos Mile Sterjovski and Scott Chipperfield were both replaced in the second half, as Basel drew 1-1 away to Terek Grozny; Qantas Socceroo Josip Skoko played a full game for Genclerbirligi as they lost 1-0 away to Egaleo Athens; Ante Covic played a full game in Hammaby-s 2-1 loss at home to Spanish side Villarreal; Qantas Socceroo Kevin Muscat was back in the Millwall side that unluckily drew 1-1 at home with Ferencvaros from Hungary and finally Qantas Socceroo captain Craig Moore played a full game in Rangers 1-0 away loss to Portuguese team Maritimo.
